Back in her hometown of Ruby Falls, Aria Heart is determined to find herself and the happiness that has always felt just out of reach. Something that would be a lot easier to do if her parents weren’t so close by, reminding her just why she left town as soon as she could, and if the house she just purchased wasn’t already giving her problems.
Just when Aria starts to second guess her decision, Tide Goodman knocks on her door and shoves his way under her defenses. Is it possible that the happiness she’s been searching for is attached to a man like Tide, the guy she crushed on in high school who didn’t even seem to know she existed? A man with an adorable daughter and baggage of his own?
In order to find out, she’ll have to put everything, including her heart, on the line one more time.
RELEASE DATE: March 23, 2021
Not my first read by the author, and well everyone I think by now knows that she is my top favorite author! She happens to be the 3rd author ever I’ve read when I started reading and romance. Pretty special to me and her writing speaks to me. I have read every single book, co book and world books! TOP fan what can I say 🙂 I have been waiting on this one, gah my heart! I loved Tide in Colton’s story which is Book 1 and I would highly recommend reading that one, so I was excited to see Tide’s love story because of his situation. That said let’s get into it.
I don’t even know where to start, I guess with the hero’s situation and that situation is his ex-wife who is gosh, it was hard for me to have any sympathy for her at all. The only thing that kind of held me over is that she really does love their daughter aside from her messed up parent’s relationship. Tide is a contactor and the way he meets Aria AGAIN is not conventional. His foreman had called and said if Tide could check out this emergency call, while Aria’s house was half falling apart, at that moment it was a ceiling and part of her living room area. In knocks Tide and to Aria’s NON-surprise that Tide doesn’t remember her, after all they did not run in the same circle back in HS. They start it off a little rough (but just the right way for the story) but just the dynamic between them fits so well, from the arguing to the looks and the THE KISS! SWOON CITY in this one, Tide truly is not only handsome, sexy, smart and swoony but also just beautiful with his daughter, makes you melt right away. Just what a man is supposed to be like!
But Aria comes from money, silver spoon if you will and even though everyone categorized her in ‘that rich girl’ she knew how hard that was to be in, with that silver spoon shoved right down her throat. Messed up parents but she came out on top, she is a award winning author and a woman of her own, buying her own house and moving after her divorce which was a joke to start with. She has always had a crush on Tide and remembers him vividly from the younger years. When she finds out he has a daughter I think she falls in love with him ever more, it’s so sweet to see them all together. But happiness is always accompanied by bitter, hate and trouble. That’s what you get in here, a little bit of parents, ex’s and hurtles to overcome. But boy do they ever overcome it beautifully, because that BOOM and love always wins!
